Most people have never considered having a will – and it’s too bad. Common misconception is that one has to have “something”, some sort of property, money in the bank to need a will. Consider this: a young couple has no property and lives from paycheck to paycheck, but they have a small child whom they love more than anything. Do they need a will? Of course they do! Why? Who will be raising their child in an unlikely event that they both shall die? Without a will, blood relation rules. So, if there are no grandparents, the child may be left in the custody of one’s 3rd cousin (if there is nobody else around). What if the couple had a friend who has always lived nearby and whom the child adores?? You need a valid will in order to name this person as a guardian for your child.
